Ricky Martin has revealed he has got engaged to his boyfriend Jwan Yosef after over a year together during an appearance on ‘The Ellen Degeneres’ show on Tues. (Nov. 15).
DeGeneres wasted no time interrogating the singer about his love asking, "Where does he live? And how long have you know him? And how did you meet?," but despite being put in the hot seat, Martin maintained his cool. "He's a conceptual artist and I'm a collector so I started looking for art and I saw his art and I went crazy...and then I contacted him," he told the curious host. "And then you collected him," DeGeneres joked.
“I proposed. I was really nervous,” Martin explained. “I got on my knees, and I took out the little velvet pouch and instead of saying, ‘Would you marry me?’ I said, ‘I got you something!’ Bad.” Despite his accidental faux pas, Martin powered through the proposal.
“I said, ‘I want to spend my life with you,’ and he said, ‘What is the question?’” he recalled laughing. “It was very beautiful and then 30 minutes after, I said, ‘Wait, did you say yes?’”
